BACKGROUND Ischemia-reperfusion (I-R) injury during liver resection leads to the production of toxic free radicals and oxidants that influence the microcirculation. DNA single-strand breaks can be induced by these reactive species. In response to excessive DNA damage, PARP [poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase] becomes overactivated, which can lead to cellular ATP(More)
The recently identified claudins are dominant components of tight junctions, responsible for cell adhesion, polarity and paracellular permeability. Certain claudins have been shown to have relevance in tumour development. The aim of the present study was to analyse the expression of claudin-1, -2, -3, -4, -5, -7 and -10 in normal canine mammary glands.(More)
The recently identified claudins are dominant components of tight junctions, responsible for cell adhesion, polarity and paracellular permeability. Certain claudins have been shown to have relevance in tumor development, with some of them, especially claudin-4, even suggested as future therapeutic target. The aim of the present study was to analyze the(More)
The matrilins represent a new family of oligomeric proteins that are assumed to act as adapter molecules connecting other proteins and proteoglycans in the extracellular matrix. Matrilin-2, the largest member of the family, displays a broad tissue distribution. It incorporates into loose and dense connective tissue and becomes associated with some basement(More)
Agrin is a recently identified proteoglycan component of vascular and bile duct basement membranes in the liver. The selective deposition of agrin in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) microvessels versus sinusoidal walls prompted us to investigate the utility of agrin immunohistochemistry (IHC) in detecting malignant hepatocellular lesions. We focused on the(More)
The recently described matrilin protein family is part of the extracellular matrix, their pathophysiological role as well as distribution in liver diseases, however, have not yet been studied. Considering that matrilins have been found to play role in cell growth and tissue remodeling, their possible involvement in carcinogenesis has been raised. The main(More)
Heparan sulfate proteoglycans mediate cell adhesion and control the activities of numerous growth and motility factors. They play a critical role in carcinogenesis and tumor progression. Agrin is a large multidomain heparan sulfate proteoglycan associated with basement membranes in several tissues. The expression of agrin in the liver has recently been(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS Ischemia-reperfusion (I-R) injury is responsible for the morbidity associated with liver surgery. Production of toxic free radicals influences the microcirculation. The aim of our study was to examine the effect of glutamine (Gln) supplementation--adminstered in alanyl-glutamine dipeptide form--on liver function, immuno/histopathology and(More)
Agrin is a multifunctional heparan sulfate proteoglycan originally discovered in the neuromuscular junctions and later observed in numerous other localizations. The presence of agrin in the liver, either healthy or diseased, has formerly not been reported. We detected agrin in minor amounts in the basement membranes of blood vessels and bile ducts in the(More)
